New year, new baby in the Kardashian household, new reasons for people to troll Kim and muse over their lives behind closed doors, apparently.
Kim Kardashian, the product of nepotism and now-mother-of-three, just welcomed a bouncing baby into the world by surrogate with husband, Kanye West.
And it’s only taken a few hours for people to start mum-shaming her.
After bringing the newborn home on Tuesday, all’s been quiet on the Kardashian front, until now, when in between some baby bonding time, Kim took to Instagram Stories alone.
The 37-year-old captioned a photo of herself standing in front of some weights:
quick workout while she sleeps
Kim was the first person to have skin to skin contact with the newborn, but apparently that’s not good enough for some people, and they wanted to see Kim with her baby, rather than in the gym.
The greedy social media monsters want pictures, stat:
just waiting for @KimKardashian to upload a pic of her baby girl ????

Ironically, some observers would be sending her snarky body-shaming messages of abuse if Kim was out of shape or, god forbid, had a little cellulite – so she really can’t win, can she?
Meanwhile, another Instagram post has sparked theories over what the third Kimye spawning will be named.
Kim posted this wealth-boasting bag post six hours ago:
Sharing a close-up of the Louis Vuitton iconic print, Kim left no caption.
So, of course, people have put two and two together to make 73, with theories circulating over this being a sign their child will be called Louis.
Others have a better idea:
Kim and Kanye checked out of Cedars-Sinai Medical center in LA on Tuesday with their new addition, whose name hasn’t been confirmed.
Kim confirmed the happy news on her website on Tuesday, writing:
Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,
We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care.
Kim, who is the birth mother to four-year-old daughter North and two-year-old daughter Saint, with Kanye, seems content with keeping her third child all to herself for the time being.
A lot has changed since she was robbed at gunpoint, she explained:

Meanwhile, the Dash Dolls on Twitter have turned celebrity sleuths, as they eagerly await the so-far-unconfirmed ushering of a new Jenner-ation, with younger half-sister, Kylie Jenner’s alleged arrival by stork.
People still think Kylie might be the surrogate:
Are we still theorizing that Kylie Jenner may secretly be Kim and Kanye’s surrogate? Jw since there were rumors she was in labor and, coincidentally, Kimye’s baby was just born ?

So Kylie Jenner is supposedly is at the hospital in labor ? And Kim just said like two days ago her surrogate is supposed to be having her baby any day ? So is Kylie the surrogate ?????? I think yes

Due to medical issues, Kim enlisted a surrogate to have her third child, but guidelines state only previous mothers can bear another’s child.
So unless we’re missing something, Kylie couldn’t possibly have been the surrogate.
Still, the Kylie Jenner pregnancy theories are showing signs now of slowing down, and the young reality TV personality has been staying out of the limelight since September, when the rumour-mill began churning.
The social media hiatus is said to continue if and when Kylie gives birth to her first child, with Travis Scott, ushering in a new dawn away from the pressures of public life and nepotistic social media ladder-climbing.
